After two nights of freezing or near-freezing temperatures in the Santa Clarita Valley, Santa Ana wind conditions kicked in late Monday and forecasters issued a red flag warning for the area.

Gusty northeast winds and very low humidity were due to continue until Tuesday evening, creating critical fire danger in the valley as well as other areas in Los Angeles and Ventura counties.

Gusts are expected to hit 35 mph through early Tuesday afternoon and ease off by Tuesday evening. The red flag warning was due to lift around 6 p.m. Tuesday, National Weather Service forecasters said.

Along with the desert winds, mostly sunny skies and temperatures in the 70s are expected Tuesday. Warmer conditions will continue through Thursday, with lows in the 40s.

But by Thursday cloudiness is expected to move into the Santa Clarita Valley, with a chance of showers by Thursday night, continuing through Friday with highs only around 67 degrees.
